It seems to be already there?


static void G_usage_xml(void)
#if defined(HAVE_LANGINFO_H)
    encoding = nl_langinfo(CODESET);
    if (!encoding || strlen(encoding) == 0) {
        encoding = "UTF-8";
    encoding = "UTF-8";
    fprintf(stdout, "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"%s\"?>\n", encoding);
    fprintf(stdout, "<!DOCTYPE task SYSTEM \"grass-interface.dtd\">\n");

Apparently the Windows built was missing HAVE_LANGINFO_H or it
isn't properly set on Windows.
